My spring break has just started and unfortunately, this year it doesn’t involve running off to Paris or Prague or Venice. I spent yesterday in Annapolis with my parents on the first warm day after this “polar vortex” we’ve been having.
I haven’t been there in years. We used to live really near Annapolis and used to go there all the time, but now I’m closer to DC so that’s where we usually go.
We ate at this random deli, Chick & Ruth’s, and it was this super casual, tiny little place with aaaaamazing crab cakes, 3 pound burgers and a 6 pound milkshake. Apparently, it was on Man vs. Food (the TV show) and you can do the challenge - which is to drink the 6 lb milkshake and down one of their “extreme sandwiches.” However, I’m not as insane as I think myself to be, so I didn’t even look at that part of the menu.
I miss the Eastern Shore because the people are so friendly and down to earth. Everyone will start a conversation with anyone and it usually ends with, “Alright, honey, you have a good day now!” It’s such a change from DC where people on the street hardly even glance your way but will most definitely bump into you.
